OK Woman Makes Threatening Comments Toward President At Town Hall

OKLAHOMA CITY -

More threats have surfaced just a day after one Oklahoma man was charged with mailing a threatening letter to President Obama.

That man could face up to five years in federal prison for making the threats.

While Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine was holding a town hall meeting, the topic quickly turned when the floor was open for discussion.

"Obama shouldn't be president if you ask me. He should be executed for being an enemy combatant."

At first it seems only laughter followed the female attendees comments on executing the president. But if you listen closely it sounds as if a male responds with "I don't know about that..."

Whether the male voice was Bridenstine or not, the Oklahoma Democratic Party feels the congressman didn't do enough.

"I am appalled someone would threaten the Commander-In-Chief, Republican or Democrat. Congressman Bridenstine owes the President an apology, the country an apology and the people of Oklahoma an apology," said ODP Chairman Wallace Collins.

"A public figure cannot control what people say in open meetings. I obviously did not condone and I do not approve of grossly inappropriate language. It is outrageous that irresponsible parties would attribute another person's reckless remarks to me," responded Bridenstine.

First amendment attorney Mark Hammons viewed the video. And the difference between these comments and the threatening letter from Rogers County resident Hunter Hines, is not a direct threat of harm.

"Comes close to that but probably doesn't cross the line because she's expressing an opinion," said Civil Rights attorney Mark Hammons.

After the woman made those comments she went on to call the President a criminal and a moron. When she was done, the Congressman went back on the topic of gun control.
